I can not believe it has been 1 year since my surgery! I feel great! I sent Dr. Millis a "Thank You" email today...and admitted to him that lately I have been jogging "lightly" - pain free. I am able to exercise without pain during or after. The surgery has changed my life. When I look back now at the "long" recovery....it doesn't seem so long now. Yes I was using a walker, then crutches, then one crutch, then a cane...for over 2 months - but it was all worth it. I am excited to see Dr Millis this summer..and have look at my hip and tell me how wonderful and normal it is now!!
